Looking forward to the release.

Any idea how far a full charge go?

Can anyone more or less extrapolate how far into the day will a full charge last with a “typical” phone usage. I am a bit worried that the more powerful Rockchip 3399 will quickly eat the same 3000 mAh that the PinePhone currently uses (its same enough, right?).

My guess:

As the battery has the same capacity and the rk3399 uses more power than the A64, you can expect less time on a full charge.

However, they use a special rk3399 designed for the phone, called rk3399s, which is a bit undervolted. This makes it run cooler and use less power than a normal rk3399.

But currently, not much software optimization has been done for this, so my guess would be about 8-10 hours of usage, on medium to light load at this point.

This will ofcourse be improved, when we actually get suspend working. :wink:
